After reaching the city of Montezuma and meeting with the emperor, Cortes and his men discovered that the city was nothing more than a trap set by the Aztecs. In just four months, Cortes and his men were forced to retreat, leaving behind a trail of destruction that would eventually lead to the Spanish conquest of Mexico.

Montezuma's fears were confirmed when Cortés began to demand tribute and make demands for political power.

Montezuma is not pleased, and he orders his priests to purify the place.
  • 00:15:00 This video covers the history of Christopher Columbus and his voyage to America. Cortes, a Spanish general, is depicted as a hero for his conquests in South America. He is also shown to be a master of deception and tactics, which makes him a very powerful man. Cortes is eventually captured by the Aztecs, and Montezuma reluctantly issues a warrant for his arrest.

  • 00:35:00 The video follows Cortez as he conquers Mexico, starting with his victory over the Aztecs. He then leads the troops in a civil war against the native people, and eventually becomes emperor. Unlike Montezuma, Cortez is willing to fight to the death to protect his empire.

  • 00:50:00 The video takes viewers through the history of the conquest of Mexico by the Spanish, focusing on the battle of Tenochtitlan. After eight nights of fighting, the Spaniards finally conquer Tenochtitlan and find that the city is full of "million people" - almost all of whom are adults. Cuauhtemoc, the ruler of Tenochtitlan, is tortured to try and get information about the location of an oracle, but it is never found. After the conquest, Cortese becomes incredibly wealthy, but his name is now synonymous with the destruction of Tenochtitlan. Almost all of the Spanish settlers remained in the new world, while the Aztec population was quickly wiped out by European diseases, guns, and steel. The video ends with footage of Catholics in Mexico City touching their quarters in order to show the solution to the conflict before it happened, but it was ultimately fruitless.
